Announcing the Color of the Year for 2011: PANTONE® 18-2120 Honeysuckle, a Vibrant, Energetic Hue

Pantone HoneysuckleA Color for All SeasonsCourageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a color for every day – with nothing “everyday” about it.While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, served as an escape for many, Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.“In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”Eiseman continues, “The intensity of this festive reddish pink allures and engages. In fact, this color, not the sweet fragrance of the flower blossoms for which it was named, is what attracts hummingbirds to nectar. Honeysuckle may also bring a wave of nostalgia for its associated delicious scent reminiscent of the carefree days of spring and summer.”….Read on @ Fashion + Home – Announcing the Color of the Year for 2011: PANTONE® 18-2120 Honeysuckle, a Vibrant, Energetic Hue.

Pantone has announced 15-5519 Turquoise as its colour of the year for 2010.

It is believed to be a protective talisman, a colour of deep compassion and healing, and a colour of faith and truth, inspired by water and sky.‘Through years of colour word-association studies, we also find that turquoise represents an escape to many – taking them to a tropical fantasy that is pleasant and inviting, even if only a fantasy.’Pantone has also included 15-5519 Turquoise as one of 200 ‘wedding colours’. Working with wedding dress manufacturers such as Dessy and Sandals Destination, Pantone aims to help brides colour co-ordinate their big day.”
